The Morton Museum of Collierville History will be holding its annual Train Heritage Day on August 11th from 10 AM to 4 PM. This event has proven popular with the model railroading community in the past, and model railroaders are once again invited to participate. This event is open to both groups and individuals.
Participants may set-up on Friday, August 10th between 9am - 5pm or Saturday morning between 8am - 9:30am. The Museum can provide 6ft. tables and chairs, please let us know upon your RSVP how many tables are needed. Groups provide their own extension cords if needed.
Mobile and Stationary Displays are both welcome.
The Museum views this event as an educational opportunity to promote model railroading, teach railroad safety, and celebrate Collierville's rich railroad history. For this reason, we ask that if vendors are interested in participating they not sell on site, but share their information and/or products and teach our visitors about what they do.
Last year around 1,200 people were in attendance. Groups who have participated in the past have been The Memphis Chapter: National Railway Historical Society, The Casey Jones Hi-Railers, The Memphis Railroad and Trolley Museum, The Bluff City Benders, and the Mid-South Garden Railway Society.
